Chefs Dishes Festival Winners 2013

The Chefs creation could be simple to fancy, using unique and innovative ingredients., be as nutritious or indulgent as he/she wants, and to be imaginative. The idea was that the dish they created was within the type of food and cuisine the restaurant specializes, and the signature dish pushed the boundaries in creativity. The public tasted and voted for the dishes from September 6-30, 2013.
